7.3 Performance Help

I have a 1995 Ford F-350 PS i just completed my 4'' custom intake and straight piped the exhaust. Also as we speak my Pyro, Boost and Fuel pressure Guage's are on their way anything i can do to the stock intake/exhaust housing on the turbo without buying an expensive *** banks system for quicker spool up?? Also chips and modules what would yall recommend i have a stock clutch in a ZF-5sp so nothing to much. And anything else performance wise is greatly appreciated Thanks For Reading

Get a custom tuned 6 position TS chip from tonywildman (call ct performance or stealth), PHP, GEARHEAD, swamps, beans, tyrant... A new comer is no limit tuning. No experiance with them.

Also in your 4" exhaust install, did u install a 3" down pipe. If not, DO SO!

I did a diamond eye 3" DP, cat delete and muffler delete with stock pipes.

I agree on the clutch but i just replaced it to a solid FW conversion but its definetly not a performance clutch.

Does wicked Wheel make one for my year? i havent seen one, i read that the exhaust side is to big for stock sticks but i could be wrong.

well a SMF is much better than the DMF. Dieselsite just came out with a second generation Wicked Wheel, WW2. they make them for the stock turbos, the D66 and the 38R. i don't know what you are asking about the exhaust side being too big. unless you mean it is a 1.15 housing as opposed to a smaller 1.0 housing the smaller housing moves the boost lower in the RPM range, but IMHO it runs out of air way too fast on the top end even with stock sticks

I was just reading and a lot of people said to go to the 1.0 housing but i can see what you mean with running out of air in the higher rpm range. And ill look into the wicked wheel for it. I just want to wake it up some when i push the skinny pedal so maybe just a wicked wheel and mild tuning will do with the stock clutch. And next i need to look into gears cause im at 2100 rpm right below 60mph i think it has a 411 ratio.

I would suggest custom tunes first, but like frank I say tony wildman, lifetime free reburns, and dieselsite makes the ww2, I have one in my pass seat rite now, after the reviews I can't wait to install it.

Also in your 4" exhaust install, did u install a 3" down pipe. If not, DO SO!
I believe No Limit is Jonathan, formerly of Bean's. Or is it Swamps... one of the two.
Tyrant is no longer tuning unless something has changed I hadn't heard about. And even if he is tuning, he seems to have problems tuning a 5 speed truck.
